 * We craned in the PI.
 * We assembled the thrust bearing holder that receives the PI-SF rod. (The recess for the bearing was very slightly too small and had a burr near a retaining screw hole that prevented the bearing from seating properly, and so it required filing and re-cleaning.)
 * We hooked the SF and lowered the jacks under the SF to suspend the SF/... section.
 * The top filter rose when unlocked, and required about 1.8 kg to send it back down. Therefore we may be OK - the top filter seems to have about 8 kg more capacity than as measured by G&M. The hex cable clamp (≈0.25 kg) and the cables between the PI and SF still have to be added, but we can get an extra 3 kg by removing one of the three Cu damper segments (and rearranging the other two).
 * Hirata-san built and installed three LBB blade units.
 * Enzo kept debugging the SF LVDT. We repaired several broken wires, but it's still not behaving correctly. We suspect the ordering of the three coils (input output and excitation) may not be right. If so, we should be able to fix it with an adapter cable without removing the SF cap.
 * We counted the used/broken/unused/need cables for Type B.
 * Hirata-san and Mark installed blades in three LBB blade units.
 * Hirata-san checked the LBB blade units to see how badly the blade tips were misaligned. The bases will need to be moved towards the clamp end by 21 mm. It is probably not feasible to turn the screw holes into slots, so an adapter part will need to be designed.
 * We checked that the new in-vacuum geophone cables that Takahashi-san had got for us were the proper new-style ones. (Thus we will need in-air descrambler cables.)
 * Shoda-san sent Enzo a document by Joris on the tuning of the LVDTs, so he stated working through it. He also researched the specifications of all the coils (PI and SF as well as BF.)
 * We found the damper magnets and the template for placing the magnets on the ring for the SF.
 * Hirata-san installed and wired up the PI yaw stepper. The vertical stepper still needs wiring, and the horizontal stepper wiring needs to be made vacuum-compatible.
 * We installed safety bars on the ±X side of the assembly frame about 3 m off the floor, so they are at waist height for a person standing on one of the tall ladders. The one on the +X side will be very good for safety where it is, but the one on the -X side will need re-doing: it is too close and not very securely attached because of interference from vacuum pump cabling.
 * We unlocked the inverted pendulum and experimented with adding weight. It was still stable with 4 layers of arc weights.
 * We also experimented with getting both the IP centered and the security structure vertical (so that the suspension hang centrally within it). We managed to get it all right with a combination of leveling the PI with the jacks and moving the IP with the fishing rods.
 * Adjusting the verticality of the SS had left the bottom of it off-center in the assembly frame, so we picked the entire system up with the crane and moved it in +Y and -X a few mm to re-center it.
 * We started to remove the PI so we could do various adjustments (check the SF LVDT, reconfigure the Cu damper, add the hex cable clamp on the rod and hang the magnet disk for the SF damper) but gave up when the PI-SF jammed in the SF.

Type B (Mark)

Past week report

At Kamioka (Mark, Fabian, Enzo, Perry, Hirata-san):

  • We counted the used/broken/unused/need cables for Type B.
  • Hirata-san and Mark installed blades in three LBB blade units.
  • Hirata-san checked the LBB blade units to see how badly the blade tips were misaligned. The bases will need to be moved towards the clamp end by 21 mm. It is probably not feasible to turn the screw holes into slots, so an adapter part will need to be designed.
  • We checked that the new in-vacuum geophone cables that Takahashi-san had got for us were the proper new-style ones. (Thus we will need in-air descrambler cables.)

  • We found the damper magnets and the template for placing the magnets on the ring for the SF.
  • Hirata-san installed and wired up the PI yaw stepper. The vertical stepper still needs wiring, and the horizontal stepper wiring needs to be made vacuum-compatible.
  • We installed safety bars on the ±X side of the assembly frame about 3 m off the floor, so they are at waist height for a person standing on one of the tall ladders.
